I've just received my copy of Decembers magazine and read Dave Wooley's piece on the Lifeboat event at New Brighton.

I'm sure that I recognise Neil's lifeboats in a couple of pictures but I'm not quite sure.

I also see that the free gift for new subscribers is a nifty transmitter and I wonder how long it will be before some shortsighted existing members start yammering for one.

Yep got my self in a picture on that as well !!..

At the end of the day people will always try to get a bargain.

Shame the next issue will be the last of the collectors corner as I always found that pretty intresting.

I'm told that the paper type hasn't changed, but the images don't seem to be quite so sharp this month. Apparently it could be in the retouching or printing process. Wait until the next issue and see if things are back to normal.

Dont tell me pictures of model boats are airbrushed and digitally enhanced like supermodels on the front of "Elle" magazine !! whatever next.

I shant bother to paint my next submission (if there is one), I shall just let the editor pick his favourite colour!!

Ashley (needs no enhancing)

Ashley,

You'd be surprised what they can do to enhance old images - you could get yourself a complete makeover!

On a different matter, there is a current post , that is asking about using tights for doing something to hulls in the construction phase and he is asking about this technique.

I am simply dying to say that i use stocklings generally as you can use those little straps to tighten things up better, but the poster is a new man and probably would think I am just a smart-arse (not true, of course)./....

I am to young to know what stockings are/were!

And, the paper is dull compared to the shinier stuff.

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
